Evening poppy

evening poppy - w

I woke yesterday morning to find the first flowers full open on this glorious self-sown poppy plant by my back door. What a treat to start the day. The colour is far from true to life, but I like the way it’s lit by the setting sun.

      Thanks, Ian! The flowers are red than orange in normal daylight and have magnificent black stamens with green pollen which the bees LOVE. No doubt I’ll be making more attempts to photograph them in coming days.
